SPIRIT DANCE & DRUM: MOVEMENT & SOUND MEDITATIONS
Join world champion dancer, Shamanic-Reiki Master, sacred dancer and certified drum facilitator, Jennifer Tehani Sarreal, on a journey through movement, sound and spirit. Based on her research on the cross-cutural link between performance art and meditation in over a dozen countries, this 3-hour intensive workshop provides the practical tools and exercises to promote a greater sense of peace, holistic well-being, self-love, empowerment and presence through the synergy of consciousness and art. All exercises in movement and rhythm are low-impact, easily executed and no experience of dance or drumming is required. Please dress comfortably and arrive with an open heart. Yoga mats and drinking water are recommended.
THE SPIRIT DANCE METHODTM
In her own words...
“Spirit Dance is a unique blend of inspired intentional movements and sacred dance practices from around the world that have been carefully combined with research I have conducted and experiences I have cultivated through my study of dance ritual in over a dozen countries. The purpose of Spirit Dance is to layer and align the physical body back into our rituals, manifestation work, meditations, energy healings and every day Divine magick. This non-denominational movement meditation and holistic wellness practice is accessible to all levels of physical ability.
Once beginning, it is instantly apparent that these intentional movement practices may not aesthetically appear “like dance” or as how classical (or even what may be considered culturally traditional) dancing is normally seen in performances. Unless one can lift up an arm in a meditative state, consciously aware of their breath, the present moment and their current alignment with the internal and external environment, it would be quite difficult to perform a syncopated dance combination or step in that same keenly aware and balanced space. As movements - that are a result of inner centeredness - progress and layer onto one another in more and more advanced practices, the practice begins to resemble the “traditional” aesthetic of dance... though that was never the point.
Though this practice is saturated with Comparative Sacred World Dance (always giving credit to the sources of origin for each dance as the focus is to honor and not appropriate the beautiful spiritual and cultural traditions I have studied and dedicated my life to for over 14 years), it is the supporting neuroscience, cultural relevance and results-based programming that makes it user-friendly and accessible for everyday people with an interest in this innovative practice of the sacred arts.
The achieved goal in the creation of the Spirit Dance Method was to take dance beyond mere physical appearance, and bring the original purpose of dance back to its practice: connection to self, connection to other, oneness and peace. Dance is about feeling; it is about having an experience beyond yourself only to realize you are so much greater than all you have imagined. It is a practice of expansion, of grounding and of holistic healing... empowering people to recognize their ability to self-heal from the inside out”.
